Here is a site with the illuminated door skuff plates. A very easy job to do (I did it in less than 10 minutes). You just pop off skuff plate, plug into wiring harness and reinsert new plate.

Someone posted instructions/pictures of how to do. Just search 'skuff plates' to get link.

Reach under one end of the sill with a thin screwdriver. pry it up, get your fingers under it and pull it off.

Locate the plug in the middle of the wire harness, cut the tape to release it, plug it into the socket of the new lighted sills. Align the sill into position, push down and snap it into place,Stand back and admire.

I followed the link and got a "product not found" message. Then I did a general search for door sills and nothing for the Genesis sedan, only the coupe. Any other places to find this product?

I ordered front sills from KAI in early january. They are currently on backorder and delivery is expected in 2-3 weeks. I'd like to do the install myself but I'm not good at that stuff.

Do I need to worry about accidentally breaking the clips when I remove the original door sill? That's my biggest concern.

If you break something, you can order the replacement part from your parts department or an online Hyundai parts dealer. That would probably be cheaper than paying the dealer labor to do it.

The sills snap off pretty easy on my Sonata without breaking any clips, and I would presume the Genesis would be the same. Give it a shot. I just hope you receive the product you ordered.

The sills pry up easily. I did this on my leased 2009 3.8, put the originals back when I handed it in, and then transferred them to my leased 2011 3.8. Just keep the originals in the packing you got the illuminated ones in.

No need to disconnect the battery.

As pimping one's ride goes, this is easy....

I'm bringing this topic back to life since I installed my lighted sills this afternoon. Gave a guy at a stereo/alarm shop in L.A. $20 to do the installation. Installation took 5 minutes and they look great. The sills aren't cheap but its a great upgrade I'll see everyday. Well worth it imho.

I installed the sills for the front doors. Now I have ordered the rear sills. I like the look.

I ordered these too, just last week. I don't think I will bother installing the rear ones, however.

Caitlin at Korean Auto Imports took my phone order.
